Your host here at Truth and Consequences, Jim Simpson, sent me (Maggie) an email this morning. It prompted the post below. Jim is busy, busy, busy right now and does not have time to put this news into a post format, so I'm sharing mine with Truth and Consequences readers:
H/T to Jim Simpson at Truth and Consequences (a Maggie's Notebook contributor). Here's Jim's email, which expresses my sentiments, including a very good idea to call Congressman McCotter and thank him for speaking out:
It is hilarious, spoken to the full House, explaining Democrat terms like "progressive" and "revenue enhancement."
Call his office to congratulate him on this rare act of relative courage (for Congressional Republicans). His number is 202-225-8171.
I told his staffer that it is nice to see a Republican showing some guts for a change, and that maybe he should encourage others to follow suit, rather than sitting around with their thumbs up their asses like they are now. The staffer told me, laughing, that the Congressman probably agrees with my sentiments.

McCotter represents Michigan's 11th District and chairs the House Republican Policy Committee and is a member of the House Financial Services Committee.
